Schlossgut Diel Goldloch Riesling Grosses Gewächs

Obviously it’s premature to note such an embryonic wine, but it was striking in all its carrot elements, carrot greens plus chervil plus yellow beets, with little of the usual apricot. I can only say the wine seemed savory and food-like, and we’ll see what happens.

Review:
Apple pit and wild carrot practically assault the nose. The impression on a firm, full palate is similarly herbal and piquant, adding tart notes of green plum and crab apple. The finish possesses herbal and earthy depth as well as invigorating tang and juicy refreshment, if marginally less focus or outright persistence than its more austere Pittermännchen counterpart. (Readers may be interested to note that opinions among my German-based colleagues have been strikingly varied: one registered an assessment not incompatible with mine, but several went positively gaga over this offering.)
